‘Smallville‘ may be going off the air after ten years, but Michael Rosenbaum will be returning as Lex Luther in a last minute addition to give some final fight for Tom Welling.
Yeah, ‘Smallville’s’ still on the air, but this is it’s final season, and Tom Welling never got considered for either of the two Superman reboot movies that happened during his run or Zack Snyder’s upcoming one. Welling did get his wish fulfilled when he continually mentioned wanting to get Michael Rosenblaum back as Lex Luther for the final season.
You’d have thought that the producers would have jumped on this before the season even started, but that’s not how it worked. Things came together very late in the season and trying to get schedules jiving together proved to be a little tough since Rosenbaum had another show he was working on ‘Breaking In’ on Fox and basically called the production team to say that he would be up in Vancouver to shoot on such and such a date and the writers cranked out his scenes which will definitely bring in some good ratings for the finale.
Rosenbaum had a killer time as he slipped on a bald cap and returned to his very, very bad ways. “I really didn’t want the day to end,” the actor shares of his whirlwind, marathon shoot. “Once you’re there, you always want more. Like, ‘Oh c’mon, this is fun. Write something else!’”
